Big Birthday Wishes Slimline

Hey everyone, it's Julianne here and I'm back today sharing how I created this slimline birthday card featuring a bunch of products from My Favorite Things. I can't get enough of these adorable cake and cupcake images from the All the Cupcakes stamp set as well as the Birthdays Take the Cake stamp set. These stamp sets were released during different releases but I thought they matched perfectly together. 

I started out by using the Big Birthday Wishes Die-namics set to die cut my background panel before I started working on creating my scene. I did my die cutting before I started creating my scene that way I knew how much room I had to play with in order to stamp all the cupcakes, cakes and my sentiment that I wanted to use. 
For all of my stamping today I used memento tuxedo black ink and did my stamping on Xpress It Blending cardstock so that I could do some copic coloring. Since I did create a scene today for my card, the first step was to decide which images I wanted in the front verse in the background. I stamped the first couple images that I knew I wanted in the front of my cupcake scene and then masked them off before stamping the rest of my images. When it comes to masking that is insuring that the images you stamp first will look as though they are in front of anything else that you stamp. 

To watch how this card came together, you can watch below of in HD on YouTube.


I want to thank you all for stopping by and spending sometime with me, I hope you enjoyed my card. Make sure to check out the rest of the design team and all their amazing creations for even more inspiration. Happy Crafting!

Baby Tags featuring the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Happy Monday! This is Kim Hamilton and I am so very excited to be sharing my first post with you for Butterfly Reflections Ink! This is making my first day back to work after a two-week break a happy one! I am sharing baby gift tags today, one of my friends is expecting and not sure what she is having so I made one of each!

I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool for the first time and loved it! I cut my own Tim Holtz watercolor paper to the size of tag I wanted (2 3/4 x 4 1/4) and cut the edges with my trimmer.  I stamped my sentiments that are by Lawn Fawn Hello Baby with VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. For the girl tag I used a mix of Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks and for the boy tag I used Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I sprayed both tags with some water and dabbed it off. I then stamped my images by My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunnies for the girl and Magical Dragons for the boy.  I colored m…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Hey, hey BRI friends!  We're hopping today to celebrate the 4th Birthday of Altenew, one of our favorite stamping companies!  You should have arrived here from the Altenew blog, and we're glad you're here to share the excitement! There are prizes and inspiration and it's going to be FUN!

With you today, is Norine from The Velvet Lemon creating for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have some projects to share today, that I made using some recently released Altenew products.  
First up, are these two cards created with the Mega Succulent stamp set.  

I stamped the image onto water color paper using the MISTI, then turned on the music and sat and colored.

  I used Faber Castell watercolor pencils so I could more easily control where the color would sit and then painted with a water brush.  I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to ensure that the ink wouldn't smudge, then tore the vellum and wrapped it around the card …

Painting backwards....

Hello, hello!  Norine here from The Velvet Lemon blog.  It's been a week for introductions hasn't it, but let me just say how delighted I am to have been invited to join such a talented group of paper crafters, and to contribute here at Butterfly Reflections Ink!  
Today I'm sharing with you, some cards I made by working backwards. 
What do I mean, you wonder?  Well, it's a technique I sometimes enjoy doing, where you "smoosh" your water based ink pads on a craft mat, mist the colors with water and then drag your water color paper through it to create a pretty mess of color.    
For today's cards, I wanted a blend of blues and greens (always a crowd pleaser) and yellows/pinks.  You will always be happier with the results when you keep the green/blues from overlapping with the yellow/pinks, because that just produces an unappealing mud color.  

I used a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks for this project, but any water based inks will work the same.  It&#…
